Off the Bookshelf: CURE FOR THE COMMON LIFE, by Max Lucado

Just shows how busy I've been -- for the last few years -- that I haven't read a Max Lucado book for quite a while. I really missed reading him, because his style is simple and easy to read, and he communicates so clearly, with humor and wisdom.

CURE FOR THE COMMON LIFE has the subtitle of: Living in Your Sweet Spot.

What's the sweet spot? It's that place where you're doing what you love. It's where a job is no longer work. When you're doing what God designed you to do, following your heart, using the talents programmed into you since before birth.

He talks about discovering your S.T.O.R.Y -- your Strengths, Topic (what you enjoy doing), Optimal conditions, Relationships, and your Yes -- when you look up to Heaven and say, "I was made to do this."

Then the last 1/3 of the book is full of tests and questions and fill-in-the-blank to help you analyze yourself and discover that sweet spot, where you were made to be, where everything works, and you're fulfilling your destiny.

Be prepared to have your eyes opened and your mind blown and your life path changed -- maybe getting on course for the first time in your life. Heady stuff!
